2023 Kia Seltos – New Engine, ADAS, Panoramic Sunroof

Kia India can launch the upgraded Seltos SUV in the country next year, i.e. in 2023. It can also be presented at the 2023 Auto Expo. However, Kia still needs to make an official announcement about this. It is being said in some media reports that the 2023 Kia Seltos SUV may come with a new turbo petrol engine, and changes can also be seen in its design. Not only this but the cabin can also be upgraded.

The 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine from the Kia Seltos line-up could be replaced by a new 1.5-litre turbocharged engine, delivering more power and torque. It may produce around 158bhp and 260Nm output. It can be given the option of a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed DCT gearbox. The existing 1.5L naturally aspirated petrol and 1.5L diesel engine options will be continued in the SUV.

The report states that the 2023 Kia Seltos will also have a radar-based driver assistance system. ADAS tech will have features like adaptive cruise control, blind spot detection, forward collision avoidance assist, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot collision avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist, safe exit warning, high beam assist and driver attention warning.

Kia recently revealed the new Seltos facelift at the 2022 Los Angeles Motor Show. The design of the India-spec model could be similar to this one. It will come with full-projection LED headlamps with a large tiger nose grille. It will get star map signature lighting on the front grille, a new bumper, integrated vertical-shaped fog lights with DRLs and LED tail-lights.

The 2023 Kia Seltos will come with a panoramic screen display, which combines a 10.25-inch instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch centre display. The infotainment system will support wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The new model will come with a new digital driver display, electronic parking brake and panoramic sunroof.
